Found a new tabletop game called gaslands. Has some amazing model builders already, tearing apart hotwheels and similar and mashing them together in amazing ways. Got some today and was working on some concepts for post apocalytpic cars, mock ups with blu-tac and toothpicks followed. No painting or actual modelling done yet, just ideas. Anyway check it out if you like the mad-max/deathrace setting.

That's some cool modifications you're doing there!

    I played in a game of Gaslands last weekend at Cold Wars, and had a blast!   It has a very interesting activation system.   In our game, the GM was using some of the larger car models produced by Eureka Miniatures for their "Mad Maximillian, 1934" game, and a few of the larger Models of Yesteryear type matchboxes.

I've been tinkering with it, but can't find anyone to give me a sit down game yet.

But several companies still produce battlefield bits like rifles and machine guns in styrene. I've modded several Hot Wheels just so.

Yeah I was thinking of getting some 1:35 ww2 model machine guns, not sure the exact size difference but I think it would work?

 

 

 

1/35th would be huge on matchbox sized cars (which run around 1/72); but that might not be a bad thing. :lol:

 

For in-scale weapons look at 1/72 weapons; or 1/48 if you want something just a little bigger.

I've used a variety of 1/35 scale weapons on the Hot Wheels cars; it's largely a matter of shortening barrels and sorta kinda obscuring the guns' origins as best one can; an anti tank missile launcher's as big as a tank gun!

      Now that my first Gaslands team is done, I am starting to work on my second: Scarlett’s raiders. Mechanically, this team works much like old pirate ships did- by transporting tons of rabble rousers that can hop off and wreak havoc after getting close to opposing cars. I thought a school bus was perfect for this, and it allowed me to practice my rust. I must admit, it is very freeing to paint a vehicle like garbage and not care if it looks messy.
       
      more to come. In the mean time, C&C welcome!

      It’s been a long time since I have posted, and a lot has been going on. Last year my friend got me into a game called gaslands, which is a post apocalyptic death race game using Converted matchbox/hot wheels cars. The game is a ton of fun, but the most fun part is converting the cars. Over the next few days I’ll post what I’ve done so far. 
       
      In the game you get to choose a team which gives you a certain flavour. This team, Beverly of the highway, has a single corporeal car and a bunch of ghost cars that zip around. It seemed like a really neat idea, so I decided to make a team. Behold! 
      first up is Beverly herself. Took awhile to get the OSL right but I like it now.
       

      ghost car 1. 

      ghost car 2, a police paddy wagon.
       

      ghost car 3 with skeleton driver pointing at his next victim. 
       

      ghost car 4. You can’t see from here but there are chains trailing from behind.
       

      the team riding the wasteland roads.
       

      even when you’re undead, you need a glamour shot for the advertisers.
       
      It took me a long time before I was happy with the painted ghost cars. My first attempt was to prime white and do a thing coat of ectoplasm green, which actually worked great but left some uneven pools on the large flat surfaces. I added more chains and flames to break those up, but the second and third attempts went poorly, so I eventually coated green then dry brushed. Oh well.
       
       
      let me know what you think. C&C welcome!

      Here are a few models I've converted/painted:
       

       

       


      If you remember the yellow/orange sport car, chance are your hair/beard are showing some white by now... :)
